The beach of La Capannina is flanked by the pool of Tortolì and the harbour of Arbatax, and has very coarse light golden sand, mixed with gravel and seashells. Its waters are of a changing blue due to the plays of light created by the sun reflecting off the water, and also over easy approach and mooring for small pleasure boats.
A magnificent view can be had from the beach that also manages to take in the peaks of the Supramonte.
